The suspect and an accomplice then ran to the north.
Officers found small amounts of blood inside and near the vehicle, as well as a shell casing. No bullet strikes were located on the vehicle or in the surrounding area.
No property was taken from either woman, the report stated. Paramedics treated the injured woman.
